Faye's block finished

Well the lilies were a challenge and they look somewhat like orchids. I tried several techniques but was the happiest with these... Roses much easier... I absolutely fell in love with the thread I used on the bullion fern. I had bought it some time ago at our only thread store... The clerk was so rude I swore I would never go back but for this brand of thread I'll relent. It is a silk from France and the brand is Gloriana...
Now my friend Ati gave me a "ha, ha, ha" when I listed all I planned to do on this block. She thought there would be no room for anyone else... But Ati, I did it all and I just eased over my alotted space a bit!!!! It was a wonderful block to work on....the colors were soothing and the fabrics luxurious. It belongs to Faye in Australia...

Gerry

You did beautiful work on your part of this block. I loved your dragonfly and the way you added your little painted button with the bead edging. Very clever. I may just try some of that thread.
